Twenty minutes after the game ended, Kasey Hill sat in front of his locker, still wearing orange and blue.
He had changed out of his Florida jersey with the NCAA patch on the right shoulder — the one he hadn’t worn since 2014 — and swapped it for one emblazoned with two words: “New York.”
It was a nod to the place where the Gators will play next: Madison Square Garden, home of the New York Knicks.
“This is definitely a great place to be right now,” Hill said with a smile.
It’s a place only Hill has been: the Sweet 16.
